environment. maybe maybe not. right now we got momentum. boy the way both cook, two of washington premier political pundits just upgraded us. they acknowledged that we have some momentum. they are saying it may be between zero seats and ten seats, but they acknowledged that we have more races in play. how do you define victory forc yourself this cycle will it be if you win ten seats or will it be if you retake the chamber? >> i define victory by simply winning. and my job as chairman of the dccc to win as many as we can in the environment we are competing in. will not get involved in. it is it single digits, is it majority? my job is to just put as many in play as we can. exploit our opponent's weaknesses, cap capitalize on the strength. i tell you, we're in a heck of a lot better position now, 30 days out, than we were a year and a half ago when we began this campaign. >> congressman, we have presidential debate this week. i think a lot of analysts thought that governor romney had a strong performance. how do you think president obama's performance is going affect turnout for democrats?

environment. you can spread by around but let's face it, in the negotiations over the past year or so, the single biggest obstacle -- optical has been republican on willingness to move significantly on taxes. if they moved on taxes, i think democrats, a number of them including the president, will move on spending and we can have a primary agreement and the lame duck session. if not, i think we go into january. what happens if we do? think of 1995. we have a government shut down. newt gingrich/bill clinton -- once the government shut down, the pressure on both sides was so intense. the pressure if we go into january will be far greater because the economic consequences and the market consequences are more significant. i think it is inconceivable that if we go into january, there won't be a solution in january or early february at the latest. there has to be a settlement, somebody will have to blink, probably both sides. i talk a little bit to people in financial markets in the york. i would think the market would react to all of this. if there is a deal in a few weeks and any deal cle

the ability to cause us taxpayers to have to pay them for the right to protect our environment and our water supply and our climate and human rights and wages and things like that. so this is absolutely outrageous. if we could go back to a system of one person, one vote, and have a real free press that enabled us to communicate and inform each other this would be a wonderful idea. unfortunately we're not there right now, so political parties in my view allow us to work together around the shared agenda. and the green party is really the one political party that is not funded by corporate money, by money that's coming from special interests. so in my way it's a way -- view it's a way for us to work together on our lives, future, education, our health and environment. host: according to the latest fcc records you received a recent installment of about $160,000, part of the matching funds still in place for those candidates who agree to accept matching funds. is that a enough money to spread the green party message? guest: we have a different way of approaching this. the big parties use tv adve

of what is the plan to actually reducing debt going forward in order to at least create an environment where the implementation can be built on a safer basis. let me turn now to the challenges facing the rest of the world. each and every part of the world has to also deliver on its promises. you might argue that both in emerging market economies and in low-income countries, promises have been delivered upon. when the crisis hit, they were the light in the darkness. emerging markets were able to lead the global economy in times of need and low-income countries, because they have suffered well enough, were able to resist the crisis. but after several years of a very strong growth, some of them, some of them double digits, clearly, that dynamic is shifting and the illusion of decoupling, if it was ever still every year, has vanished. the major emerging markets that would be reflected in our forecast as well, they must follow through on actions needed to position themselves as the potential global growth leaders for the future. the focus should be on countering vulnerability, whether they
